Merge releases Fusion PACS MX 3.0 with mammo capabilities
Merge Healthcare has released Fusion PACS MX 3.0, featuring integrated Merge Mammo 7.10, its digital mammography application.

Using Merge’s integration technology embedded within Fusion PACS MX 3.0, radiologists can launch Merge Mammo right at the PACS workstation, according to the Milwaukee-based company. In addition, Fusion PACS MX 3.0 introduced several new features including study caching, viewing protocol enhancements and extended keyboard shortcuts.

"Merge Mammo is a multi-modality, vendor-neutral digital mammography workstation that enables imaging centers to use a single workstation to display and read images from different vendors and different acquisition devices, including digital mammography, ultrasound, MR and CT," said Gary Bowers, president of Merge Healthcare North America. "Now, with Fusion PACS MX 3.0, users can launch Merge Mammo 7.10 from the PACS workstation without having to deal with two separate worklists or sending mammography studies to a different workstation."

Additional Merge Mammo 7.10 features include: support for 12-bit printing; support for Microsoft Windows XP 64-bit architecture; hanging protocol matching; customizable line measurements; optimumView tool; support for fanning view; window/level shortcut; and automatic VGA monitor support of ultrasound images.
